Over the next few years the Journal of Cardiovascular Development and Disease (JCDD) is planning a series of special issues entitled “Leaders in Cardiovascular Research” in which we will highlight the work and achievements of outstanding and unique researchers that have made major and often paradigm shifting contributions to the field.
The first publication in this series will focus on the accomplishments of Prof. Antoon Moorman, a pioneer in the field of heart development who retired in 2012 from his position as Professor and Chair of the Department of Anatomy, Embryology and Physiology at the University of Amsterdam. As the leader of a productive and dynamic group of young investigators in Amsterdam, Prof. Moorman was the driving force behind many multidisciplinary studies that, over the years, have significantly changed and improved our understanding of the development of the four-chambered heart.
This commemorative issue will contain a series of commissioned scientific papers and reviews on topics pioneered by Prof. Moorman. In addition, authors interested in participating in this special issue on any topic in which the work of Prof. Moorman has been instrumental are invited to contact the Guest Editors.
